Inexpensive scarves holder idea

After I received Eugenie's gift, I had to come up with an idea how to organize all my scarves. I have quite a few of them. I know if I put them in a box or drawer, I'll forget about them, and will never wear :)

How to make a Christmas paper ball ornament

I remember this kind of paper ball ornaments from my childhood :) It was fun project in kindergarten when we made them out of old post cards. :) I don't have any post cards to recycle, so I simply got in Michaels scrapbooking heavy paper with holographic finish.

Christmas wreath decoration

In my mother country, there is no tradition to hang up a Christmas wreath... or any other wreath at all :)  That's why this year it's the first time when we have a Christmas wreath on our door. Yes, yes, I'm absorbing :)

I didn't want to buy some artificial wreath, and they are also quite expensive for one time usage (who knows... may be next year I won't hang it up :)  ). I wanted to have one which is made of real pine. That's why, my hubby and I got one in Costco which is made of pine and decorated with some pine cones and berries.

After we hung it up, it was clear that it doesn't look like Christmas one. I had to come up with an idea how to decorate it...

Once upon in autumn day in Napa

Napa... In my understanding, it's one of the greatest places on California map. We've been to Napa many times, but it happened to be the first time when we went there on a weekday in fall. Well... I guess it's the best time. It was not crowded, it was warm but not really hot. So it was exactly as I like... calming and relaxing.
